Rating Definition:

Excellent. The barrel retains 95% of the original blue finish, with some minor spotting and rubbing, and the slide and frame retain 97% of the matte gray phosphate finish, showing some mild spotting and edge wear. The grips are also excellent, with some light scratches, and the holster shows some scuffing and cracking but remains generally solid. Mechanically excellent.
